This is the military issued headstone for Jeremiah FRAZEL, son of Joseph and Naomi (Fancy) Frazel. He was born in Nova Scotia and came to Massachusetts with his parents and siblings in 1892. Jeremiah was a shoemaker and worked at Diamond Shoe in Marlborough, Middlesex, MA.
He enlisted 6 May 1898 into Co F. 6th Massachusetts and was transferred to Co D 8th Mass Infantry. The birth date on this plaques doesn't match his draft records. He was born 9 May 1879..
I am still working on where he lived and his marriages. He is buried with his wife Bessie Mann and her sister and husband at Maplewood Cemetery in Marlborough, Middlesex, MA. There is a gravestone in front of this stone. I have no idea why this plaque is behind the stone and a bit of a distance away.
